So I hear that sometimes online. The truth is, you sometimes do regret a workout. Maybe you are really uncomfortably sore. Maybe you hurt yourself. Maybe you were just too emotionally exhausted after a crazy day to enjoy it.
I almost had one of those workouts. It ended up being enjoyable after it was done, but jeeze rough workout. We have been doing a much better job waking the dogs regularly. They LOVE it. Yesterday I had a late night at work and didn’t get home till 830 and Mousse was still begging for a walk which he didn’t get. Today, steve was running late from work and I was telling myself I was too tired. Mousse started running around the house making whale noises (you know, bawoooroooooha) and being a nuisance. I figured a walk is an easy enough request to accommodate.
Got the dogs on their little splitter leash and went out.
Started well enough. We haven’t been walking them on the splitter and they sometimes forget that they are attached. Mousse ended up peeing all over Cara’s head. She freaked out (I get it, don’t blame you baby girl!!) and we found out that her harness was loose and she managed to buck out of it. Right at that point a squirrel ran across the street and she bolted. Luckily I reached out and grabbed her tail. She yelped (sorry pup, it was for your safety), but I grabbed her. She started baying, as beagles do, and I had to wrestle a wet stinky dog back into her harness and tighten it up. Somehow Mousse didn’t take advantage of the situation and run off. He stayed where he was supposed to be. Got them all ready to keep waking. At that point, Cara realized she wasn’t wearing her bark collar and sang the song of her people for the rest of the 30 minutes.
I almost started crying once we started walking again-it was near a very busy street, and Cara could have gotten hit by a car if I hadn’t caught her. She wouldn’t stop baying. But, I kept walking. I decided the houses we were walking past could deal for a few minutes of her noise while I walked past. She settled down, we had a nice walk. Got home safe and sound and paid her back for her misbehaving by pouring a watering can over her wet dirty head.
I don’t think it’s true that you always enjoy working out. Sometimes it’s not fun. Sometimes it’s down right pissy. But sometimes if it’s not actually all that bad, you can power through and see the humor in your situation and end up pretty happy.
